Adam McKay’s New Comedy ‘Average Height, Average Build’ Finds Home At Netflix

As per Deadline Following the success of Don’t Look Up, Netflix and Adam McKay are reuniting as the streamer has acquired Adam McKay’s new star-studded directorial feature, Average Height, Average Build. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr., Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler. McKay, who has written the script, will direct and produce under his Hyperobject Industries banner with Kevin Messick.

The star-studded pic is Netflix’s second most popular film of all time globally with nearly 360 million hours viewed in the first 28 days after its release. It reached #1 in 92 countries. Don’t Look Up received four Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and won Best Original Screenplay at the Writers Guild of America Awards.
